Keto Butter Chicken Recipe

We love a good traditional Indian curry dish and this Keto Butter Chicken Recipe is the very BEST version made with your Instant Pot! This is quick, achieving that accustomed depth of flavor, without spending many hours to create.

 

Even the kiddos will be begging for more of this rich and creamy dish, because it has PLENTY of spices- but isn’t too spicy. Of course, you can fire it up more after the kids plates are dished out!

 

There are definitely options for simplifying this dinner, using other premade spice blends (if you have them), though we wanted to break down all of the goodness that goes into a delicious curry.

Here’s a video that shows a quick version of how we made this Keto Butter Chicken Recipe!

 

Notes:

This can be made in a slow cooker- heat butter on high, add diced onion and saute a couple minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients, stir then cook on low 6-8 hrs (4 hrs on high).

Serving over riced cauliflower, mash or good leafy greens- makes a very filling portion per person.
